Thank you lovely Lisa

I arrived home last week to find a surprise parcel from the lovely Lisa Inside was a lovely appliqued vest and shoes for the hopefully-soon-to-be born baby and a little puch for me to store a couple of nappies and some wipes in (in a lovely denim and red spot combo). The tag was very cute too, although I don't think you can see it too well in this photo but it was a hand drawn picture. How very generous for her to send us such a fab gift.

Lisa makes and sell fantastic bags and pouches too so you should check out her blog as well as her madeit and etsy stores.

Thank you Lisa!

Thank you Aimee (my EB secret santa)

I took part in this year's Essential Baby sewing group secret santa. I duly sent off my parcel last week and received these goodies in return from Aimee. A table runner and placemats along with a Christmassy scented candle. My favourite colour is red and I'm also a bit partial to blue so the gifts were just perfect and will look lovely on my outdoor table (when it stops raining that is).

I hope my secret santa likes what I sent her...merry christmas!

A very belated thank you

Many moons ago I was lucky enough to win a giveaway on Pink Lizzy's blog. The prize was a gorgeous Oliver and S bubble dress for Maddie. I have been meaning to take a photo everytime she wears it and post it here as a thank you but for some (pregnant?) reason I always seem to forget...and then she spills something down it! Anyway, Maddie chose to wear the dress to our mother's group xmas party today and I remembered to take a pic before we left the house, typically though she kept it nice and clean all day.

So here she is wearing the dress. I have had so many compliments on it and Maddie loves it so a HUGE thank you to Pink Lizzy.

More Christmas sewing...and a birthday present

Here's some more Christmas sewing...

A toolbelt and tools for Maddie's friend Angus (twin brother to Clementine who will receive the tiara in my previous post)....a clutch bag and heat bag for my mother's group secret santa...a little top appliqued with an embroidered rocking horse (my first attempt at embroidery and I'm quite pleased) for my friend's little girl and a two pocket tote bag using denim and Amy Butler's daisy chain fabric for my friend Katrina's birthday (mummy to Angus and Clementine).

That's pretty much all the sewing that I had to get done for Christmas and before the baby arrives. I have ongoing projects but I'm glad I've managed to get all my presents done.
